  • The Darkness (PG-13)

    Kevin Bacon and Radha Mitchell star in this horror flick about a family returning from vacation who are followed by an ancient, evil spirit. more...
  • Day of the Jackal

    Terrific escapist entertainment, directed by Fred Zinnemann, and starring Edward Fox as the Jackal, a hired assassin out to murder Charles de Gaulle and collect half a million dollars, and Michel Lonsdale as the shrewd police inspector who doggedly foils the plot. more...
